- Carlos Ruiz, Eddie Lewis, Supplemental Draft, Trades
We finally got some confirmation that two deals went down today that we’ve been talking about for a couple days now.
- LA Galaxy ships striker Carlos Ruiz to Toronto FC for a first and second round pick in the 2009 MLS Supplemental Draft and salary budget considerations.
- The Galaxy also sign veteran midfielder/defender Eddie Lewis.
First off, Ruiz gets dealt for TWO supplemental picks and “budget considerations.” Good lord have the mighty fallen hard. That is just laughable at this point. Toronto gets an absolute steal of a deal really. If anyone comes out on top it has to be Toronto. Even if Ruiz doesn’t produce well while he is there its still a cheaper deal for them considering the lack of talent that comes out of the Supplemental Draft anymore.
LA doesn’t come up short handed though either, I love the addition of Lewis.
So for the last time, who comes out on top here now that we see it all laid out?
